Our premium tasting presents you with five of our favourite and traditional wine varieties to enjoy. Our team will take you on a journey through the wines and will be able to answer all your questions. We will be guided by you - some people love to explore everything about each wine and some people prefer to explore the wines on their own.
The tasting is $5 per person and it is refundable for each person who purchases a bottle of wine.
Our super premium tasting offers you a taste of all of our current vintage wines. Building on the five wines from the premium taste you will also get to try our small batch and alternative variety wines. Our team will take you on a journey through the wines and will be able to answer all your questions. We will be guided by you - some people love to explore everything about each wine and some people prefer to explore the wines on their own.
The tasting is $15 per person and you will receive $5 off bottles of wine up to a maximum three bottles.
Relax in the sculpture garden and let your senses run wild! Have some 'me' time to listen the songs and chirping from native birds, feast your eyes on the stunning views overlooking the garden to the gorgeous country side, focus on the texture and aromas from cheese and wine; and enjoy the taste explosions of competing flavours from the wine and cheese.
Set your own pace to explore the complementary flavours of five cheeses matched with our premium wine range with the wines provided in 20ml test tubes for you to pour into your glass.
The cost is $12 per person and $5 is refundable on purchases a bottle of wine.
A perfect opportunity to treat yourself. Your experience will start with a guided tasting of our premium wine range (five wines) by a member of the cellar door team. After you have tasted the wines you'll have to make a hard decision - 'what wine would I like a glass of with my cheese plate'. The cheese plate has three gourmet cheeses, home made quince paste, dried fruits, nuts and crackers. Then it's just sit back, sip on your wine and graze from the cheese plate.
The cost is $30 per person and $5 is refundable on purchases a bottle of wine. Bookings are essential for this experience.
With tables scattered throughout it, our beautiful sculpture garden it is a perfect place for a picnic with wine. The garden is a tranquil setting and has plenty of space between tables. The garden is home to sculptures from local and not so local artists. Some of the sculptures are tactile and invite you to touch them to see their movement. Don't be scared of the larger than life Ned Kelly or Old Man Emu!
Collect your picnic basket from the cellar door and take it to the beautiful sculpture garden to enjoy. Your basket will have a selection of antipasto, cold meats, cheese, dip, crackers and a sweet treat. For every two people who book you will receive a bottle of wine (your choice of Riesling, Chardonnay, Rose, Shiraz Viognier or Cabernet Sauvignon) to enjoy with your picnic.
The cost is $45 per person. Bookings are essential for this experience.
Michael and Wendy O'Dea, owners and wine makers at Dionysus Winery, enjoy sharing their passion for wine with small and large groups. For groups of ten or more people we have developed a couple of group tasting options to ensure that your visit to Dionysus Winery meets all your needs. For those interested in tasting a range of wines with a view to purchasing a few to take home we recommend option 1, for those out for a fun day at a winery and not so much interested in tasting a range of wines but catching up with friends and family with a glass of wine we recommend option 2.
Option 1: Group Tasting Experience - similar to the premium wine tasting experience outlined above with an area set for you prior to arrival. The cost of this option is $10 per person and each person who purchases a bottle of wine will receive a $5 discount.
Option 2: Perfect if the purpose of your day is to socialise with friends and family at the wineries. Don't worry about tasting a range of wines - go straight to this option! Each person will receive a glass of wine of their choice (five choices provided) and cheese plates (three cheeses, nuts, dried fruit and crackers). Sit back, drink wine, eat cheese and have a lovely time with your friends and family. The cost of this option is $20 per person.
